I have three knots in a line along the left side of my neck starting behind the ear. Probably from experiencing a minor whip lash. What is wrong?

In brief: See a doc

It could be from whiplash but the first thing that i think of when i hear that description is that you may have some enlarged lymph nodes in your neck.
I would advise that you see your primary care doctor and have it examined.

In brief: Muscle spasm

This sounds like muscle spasm.
That's when the muscle gets irritated and contracts causing spasms. You should try physical therapy antiinflammatory medications and see your spinal specialist.
